Source & Method

My sources: “The Long Evenings of Their Leavetakings” by Eavan Boland, “Study in Black” by Rickey Laurentiis, and “Whispers of Immortality” by T.S. Eliot

Because images in these poems intrigued me, I went into the text to white out words surrounding the images and created a new poem. I kept all the words in their poems’ original order so that the visual construct portrays a poem within a poem.


Marcia J. Pradzinski, author of LeftBehind, published by Finishing Line Press in 2015 is a Chicago native, living in Skokie, Illinois. A retired ESL instructor, her poems have been featured in print and online.
